Coffee Cake Roll with Chocolate Butter Cream
There are a many things in baking which I have never tried and this time .... it's time to make swiss roll cake!
I heard many tricks from people who can do well in rolling swiss roll cakes such as using thin cotton white cloth instead of grease paper, using wooden pole to help when you are rolling, do not bake the cake till it's too dry it might cause the difficulty for rolling, etc... I also kept watching VDO clip which is teaching how to make roll cake many times before I started this experiment. For this time I made the cake by using chiffon cake recipe with coffee flavor and for filling I used chocolate butter cream. I was surprised that the combination of coffee & chocolate of my cake was fantastic! Even my brother in law who doesn't like anything with coffee, he said it's very good taste when it's come together. Even though I did not use all tricks as I learnt but I was quite happy about my first experiment this time :)
